Borders car firm creates 70 jobs in Workington

A car company has announced a £3m expansion into west Cumbria, creating 70 jobs.

Border Cars has showrooms in Carlisle and Dumfries, and is due to open new premises on the Lillyhall industrial estate in Workington.

Around 40 construction jobs will be created during the six-month build and a further 30 when the new business opens in December.

The four-acre site will be next to the A595 on Joseph Noble Road.

Fraser Brown, general manager of the company's two Carlisle sites, will take on responsibility for the Workington business.

He said: "This is going to be a positive move for west Cumbria and Border Cars."
